Team Jumbo-Visma’s Jos van Emden and Koen Bouwman rode their Bianchi Aquila CV to the World Championships’ throne, leading the Netherlands to win the Mixed Relay TTT in Harrogate (UK) on Sunday, September 22nd. Counting also on Amy Pieters, Lucinda Brand, Riejanne Markus and Bauke Mollema, the six-rider team completed the 27,6 km race in 38:27, with a 23-second advantage on Germany team and +51 on the landlords of the Great Britain team.

2019 ITT Dutch champion nine years after his first title, winner of Giro d’Italia’s closure in Milan’s Piazza del Duomo two years ago, Van Emden was among the Team Jumbo-Visma’s riders who played a key role in the testing and development of Bianchi’s revolutionary time trial machine, that included advanced wind tunnel testing to reach the ultimate aero performance.

The silver medallist Germany’s team included Team Jumbo-Visma’s Tony Martin, also riding Aquila CV.

The Team Jumbo-Visma is equipped with Aquila CV, Bianchi’s ultimate time trial machine engineered with the Bianchi CV system powered by Countervail. Aquila CV is designed to increase power output and rider’s energy, with maximum control with each pedal stroke.
